They made a grill this big because the front won't look completed with smaller grill, unless they redesign the front bumper. I think for big cars like x7, the headlights need to be bigger. It's the only way to make the grill this big look good with the headlights. They want to follow the trend, but the headlights are too slim for a big car.

What is wrong with the design team?
They really think because this is a suv so someone will buy no matter how ugly it is?

I feel bad for my eyes...

I mean aside from the obvious bad bits, it's not too too bad. The hockey stick is sooooo distracting.

EDIT: I didn't want to complain about the kidneys... but... i'll eat crow. I shrunk them down. ( at my office, so no photoshop ) I overall like the design elements but couldn't but see it'd be quite nice with small grilles

The grill will likely be similar shape and ratio to the front as the X3 in my opinion. Modern BMW concepts seem to be over emphasizing the grill.

I could be wrong but BMw has been very conservative with respects to what makes production. If I am wrong I commend them for being bold.

BMW, put back the camouflage, the X7 looked much better that way.

I guarantee it'll have those buck teeth and lame hockey stick on the side.

This shyt looks like a German version of the new Lincoln Navigator.
Yeah I agree with the hockey stick thing but I bet the grill will be smaller. Concepts over emphasize design features.

I guarantee the end design will be much more conservative in typical BMW fashion.

Wow that's one of the worst looking vehicles BMW has put out in a long time.. what happened to the timeless lines of the previous generation x5's?

Yes I know this is a larger SUV but if this is BMW's design language going forward then I'm glad I kept my sexy ass e92 m3!! LOL

Hey guys

I know this is going to seem stupid but I am currently looking for a very very specific car.
I just lost my GTR in the flood in Houston, so I started looking for my next car. I really have my heart set on a M6 GC but it has to be a very specific color combo.

I am looking for a 2013 and up M6 grancoupe with the san marino exterior and sakhir orange interior. I really have my heart set on that color and i know its hard to find but ill wait it out as much as i can. i will be uploading a pic for attention but if you or anyone you know that has what i am lookin for and is looking to sell, i would appreciate it if you could pass along my info.

i dont really check my pm's too much on here so ill be leaving my number. my name is sonny and my number is 832-860-2425.

i would appreciate the help and would love to buy one asap.

Thanks for the read!
